StarTalk: Everything You Ever Need to Know About Space Travel, Sci-Fi, the Human Race, the Universe, and Beyond

In StarTalk, Neil deGrasse Tyson has compiled the best segments of his podcast and television show into a rich compendium of entertaining and informative sections on a vast array of subjects. If you've ever wondered what astronauts eat while in space or where their waste products go, whether planting thousands of trees would help offset carbon emissions, how a roller coaster works, or if we could survive a magnetic polar reversal, then Tyson has the answer for you. Geared toward the young, but intriguing for all ages, these solid snippets of science-backed data will satisfy the curiosity of those in search of a quick answer while piquing the interest of those who wish to investigate further. Color photographs and graphics enhance every page, further stimulating the reading experience. StarTalk is so filled with details on everything from salt to sex to comedy and religion that it's best read in short sections, in order to appreciate the magnitude of information it contains. --Lee E. Cart, freelance writer and book reviewer
